The North Korean warning came as relations between the two Koreas have been strained amid a prolonged deadlock in broader nuclear diplomacy between Pyongyang and Washington.
The Korean Central News Agency said Saturday that he attended a ceremony marking the completion of a fertilizer factory in Suncheon, near the capital of Pyongyang, with other senior officials, including his sister, Kim Yo Jong.
Amid rumors regarding Kim's health, his absence from certain events could have stemmed from steps taken recently in North Korea to limit a potential coronavirus outbreak, officials say.
A top South Korean official says his country is confident there have been no “unusual developments” in North Korea, suggesting that rumors about the possible ill health of leader Kim Jong Un are untrue.
Kim Jong Un’s health appears could be more serious than initially believed, according to multiple reports.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has accused the Trump administration of dragging its feet in nuclear negotiations and warned that his country will soon show a new strategic weapon to the world as its bolsters its nuclear deterrent in face of “gangster-like” U.S. sanctions and pressure.
North Korea said Sunday it carried out a "very important test" at its long-range rocket launch site that U.S. and South Korean officials said the North had partially dismantled as part of denuclearization steps.
North Korea says the Trump administration is running out of time to salvage nuclear negotiations, and that it’s entirely up to the U.S. to choose what "Christmas gift" it wants.
